Colin Firth and 'The King's Speech' leads with 14 Bafta Nominations!!!

Colin Firth, who just won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture for his award winning film, The King's Speech this past Sunday (January 16th) gets another nomination for Leading Actor (which he won last year for A Single Man) and a total of 14 nominations for TKS (including Best Film, Director, and Actor) at the 2011 BAFTA, which was announced by P&P's Talulah Riley and Dominic Cooper this morning.

While Rosamund Pike and Carey Mulligan made the BAFTA Longlist, neither one made it to the shortlist of the final BAFTA nominations (and it seems Miss Pike Disappointed By Bafta Choices). Rosamund Pike's Made In Dagenham co-star Miranda Richardson and the film scored 4 nominations though. Talulah Riley's Inception film garnered 9 nominations. Meanwhile Lost In Austen's Gemma Arterton is nominated for Orange Wednesdays Rising Award. Read this article from BBC News about Baftas 2011: surprises and sure things, it mentioned Carey Mulligan's exclusion in the nomination as well as Sally Hawkins. Interesting no mention of RP, Paul Giamatti (who just won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Comedy/Musical this past Sunday), and Barney's Version's snubbed after lots of mentions in the longlist...

Watch Dominic Cooper and Talulah Riley announce the nominations for the 2011 Orange British Academy Film Awards.
The nominations announcement was held at BAFTA's headquarters in Piccadilly. The introduction was made by Academy Chairman Tim Corrie and the nominees were announced by actor Dominic Cooper and actress Talulah Riley.
